It is always a pleasure to work with Ward Thomas and we are very excited to share their new album 'Restless Minds' and single 'Lie like me'. We love the styling by Ellie Witt and photography by Damien Fry. Big thanks to Mike Mahoney on hair.

Sisters Catherine and Lizzy are super into natural beauty and below you can find the products we used on them. With a special mention to Weleda's Sea Buckthorn Body Lotion nick named by the girls as 'Gin & Tonic'. Like the drink it is non-greasy and absorbs quickly; leaving no headache though, only beautiful skin! ; )

 

On Catherine we cleansed with Madara's Micellar Water and Neils Yard Organic Eye Make Up Remover followed by Nourish Toner and Nourish Argan Skin Treatment, a beautiful facial oil for any type of skin. It layers really well with the mattifying Ere Perez Quinoa Foundation for second-skin light flawless finish. Lips balm by All You Need Is Me and blotted. Next we pencilled the lip contour and inside with Zao 609 Lip Pencil Baby Pink layered with Ilia Lip Crayon Dress You Up. A little cream blush by Juice Beauty in Flush 04.

A new staple is Ilia's Eye Primer not only for hold but also increase the intensity of the eyeshadow.  For a neutral base we used the palest colour of Lily Lolo Laidbare Palette with a graphic eye flick by Inika Liquid Eye Liner.  We love Lily Lolo's Mascara for deep black colour, volume and it stays! 

For brows on both  we love Zuii Organic Brow Definer (great slanted shape and on point colour in Coco and Taupe) and Zao Brow Powder for full and matte pigment.

To prep Lizzie's skin, we used Therapi Honey Skincare Lemon Mirtle Toner followed by Twelve  Beauty's Brightening and Corrective Serum to balance and prime skin for the foundation. We hydrated lips with Twelve Beauty Hyaluroil Lip Treatment that comes in a rollerball that we love - try it with code VANZEE10.

We used super pigmented Juice Beauty Phyto Pigments Flawless Foundation a serum base that conceals any redness or blemishes and blends seamlessly into skin. We used Lily Lolo Flawless Matte Finishing Powder and a pop of coral powder blush by Lily Lolo Cheekduo Coralista.

On the lips we used a mix of Ilia Organic Lipstick in colours Dizzy + Voila set with the orange eyeshadow from Inika Vegan Day to Night Eye Shadow Palette.

On Lizzie's eyes we also used Ilia's Eye Primer with a dusting of Lily Lolo Orchid and Inika Shimmer Light Pink Fairy Floss Eye Shadow. On lashes we used DHC Double Protection Mascara for smudge-proof water resistant lash elongation which is very gently on sensitive eyes, as non-toxic as possible for performance but not natural/organic!

For red lips we love Kjaer Weis Classic Red Lip Liner with Absolution Matte Theatre Red Lipstick on Catherine and shade Rouge Coquelicot on Lizzie.  Or try RMS Lipstick in Red or Firestarter for stunning full pigment that holds.
